Placing a Hold on Mail to Pick Up

  1. Bithimala Well Known Member Member

    Sorry if this is not the right place for this thread, but I can't figure out how to do this for the life of me and have no idea where to post this...

    I have placed an order for some shrimp online. I would like to pick them up at the post office instead of having them delivered so that they are not out in the insane heat in the mail truck. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do that on USPS.com. The shortest hold I see available there is 3 days.

    Could someone who has done this please walk me through the process?

    If you call USPS they'll hold it at whichever branch is closest to you instead of loading it onto a truck. I used to do it for reptile shipments all the time. Not sure if it can be done online, but I've done it multiple times on the phone.
